Cyclone Conservatives: Fred Thompson's Presidential Announcement in Des Moines

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

This afternoon I trucked it down I-35 from Ames to Des Moines to
attend former United States Senator Fred Thompson's Presidential
announcement event in Des Moines at the Polk County Convention
Complex. This was an extraordinarily well planned event and very
professional in nature. There were also, I would estimate, somewhere
between 350 and 400 people in attendance, which definitely brought a
smile to the Senator's face and no doubt some added optimism to the
blossoming campaign of the former Law and Order star. There was an
immense gaggle of news and media outlets there. Of all the single
candidate events that I have attended so far in 2007, no other single
candidate event had more media. Not even close. I did about 5 or 6
interviews with different tv and print publications, including
Newsweek and the New York Times.
